getting hammered. we had a tornado warning earlier this afternoon for rockville, maryland. that has expired. but these storms are now working their way across the chesapeak i wouldn't be surprised if we get more warnings issued with these storms as we advance through the rest of the evening hours. here's what's happening in terms of the heat. we still have the heat advisories for much of the east, the south, stretching into alabama, into georgia. where it feels like it's 110 degrees even. and there are a lot of places yesterday that actually soared to record highs. and you can see it here. richmond, virginia, for example, what a hot summer it's been for you, up to 105 degrees yesterday. so some really hot numbers there. baltimore, up to 100, raleigh up to 100 as well. and in new york's central park. 97 degrees, it's been a stretch a long stretch of hot weather and the storms have only been providing some relief, really. because it tends to get hot once again. i can tell you that tomorrow you'll get an improvement and you'll see a reduction in humidity but it won't be a dramatic chan
in gaithersburg, maryland, about 20 miles north we have of the nation's capitol. the quake was felt by as many as 3 million people in the mid-atlantic region. there were no reports of injuries or damage, but residents flooded 911 lines to report the rumbling. let's get more now from someone who actually felt it. cnn producer trish chicka, who was at home in kensington, maryland, when the quake hit and joins us right now on the phone. what did you feel and hear? >> caller: hi, fredricka. i had just gotten out of the shower at the time, and all of a sudden i felt you know, my -- the bottom of the tub was vibrating. the low, deep rumble. the windows, or the window flight my shower, it was rattling. it felt like a train or a huge truck was going by, but, of course, i would have had to been right outside my window if that were the case. it didn't make any sense, and i felt this momentary, maybe low level feeling of panic. i'm in the shower. i'm thinking, that's kind of a vulnerable place to be. should i -- >> were you thinking, this is a tremor? an earthquake? or thinking something else was going o
through. we're getting a lot of intensity with it particularly in delaware and maryland. we've had reports of wind damage as the storms continue to persist. and roll across the jersey shore. working their way towards coastal delaware and certainly through the hamptons and long island. now up towards boston. up in boston the weather is not as intense as it is further south. i think it's much worse in the mid-atlantic in terms of severity. so some severe thunderstorm watches are in effect through 7:00 tonight. they may get extended longer than that. that includes new york and more of the western areas into new jersey. philadelphia, through dover, delaware and washington, d.c. these orange boxes you see here right now are severe thunderstorm warnings. even if it's not a tornado warning, you could get a sudden gust of wind at 60 miles per hour or even greater. so that makes it very damaging as well. we're tracking this severe weather. we're also tracking other stories across the country. you saw the threat, the dwf wildfires, this is important to know. parts of nevada and california are under
guy, to the everyday consumer? professor peter moricci from the university of maryland joins us. good to see you. >> nice to be with you. >> what immediate changes will we see with this? let's start with credit cards? >> well, credit cards will be clearer. for example, i have my latest bill from hsbc. it tells me if i make the minimum payment it will take me 20 years to pay it off and the interest charges will be almost double the principal that's here. if i make a larger payment it will take only three years to pay it off and the interest will be only 60%. >> okay. so let's move on now. interest will be only 60%. so that should help. >> right. >> okay. >> but the banks will make less money doing this. so you're going to see, you know, somewhat lower credit limits because the banks are going to be more cautious about extending too much credit to people. >> okay. >> things of that nature. >> let's move on now to checking accounts here. >> well, right now the banks don't make money by charging you to use a checking account. we have free checking. the checks are inexpensive. they make mo

and new jersey and maryland have already taken steps to do an end run around the electoral college, saying they will give all of their states electoral votes to the candidate who wins the popular vote nationwide. now, beyond that, we have massachusetts possibly coming on board, if the governor signs this thing. and a fistful of other states possibly heading that way. and it would work like this. of if, for example, you had massachusetts over here, which is pretty solidly blue, and they voted for a democrat, but more voters nationwide wanted a republican candidate, under this rule what would happen is massachusetts would then give its 12 electoral votes to the gop candidate who make sure the republican who won the popular vote also won the election. these laws are written so that no state will do this unless enough others go along to make it effective. but this is aimed at heading off problems like the one we saw in 2000 when al gore won more popular votes but then lost the election to george bush because of the electoral vote. rick? >> know what i'm looking at? i'm looking at this thing an
